Amazon Prime Video series ‘Inside Edge’ which is based on the dark side of match-fixing in cricket and has had two successful seasons is facing a bit of a dilemma with the OTT platform, who are asking the makers to re-shoot a large portion of the upcoming third series.
According to FilmFare, Amazon Prime Video is concerned that the Indo-Pak angle for the upcoming third season may come across controversial. A close source shared, “The content isn’t upto the mark and after tasting success in The Family Man 2, the heads of Amazon Prime Video are being very cautious about the image of their platform. They don’t want to touch anything that’s substandard. There is an entire Indo-Pak element, wherein Vivek Oberoi’s character teams up with the Pakistan cricket board to destroy the Indian Cricket League. While they do believe that the content has potential, they also fear controversy with an added up negative factor of below par content. All these factors have forced Amazon Team to suggest the creators of Inside Edge 3 to reshoot the series.”
Created by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, there has been no confirmation whether the makers have agreed to re-shooting or cancelling the third series.
